SinfulColors Anchors Away

Y'all can't say I never tried it! I picked up this shade along with Coral Riff and Curry Up. I really liked the way this shade looked in the bottle. Yes... it was a yellow with orange tendencies, but I could overlook that, right? Ehhhhhh...

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
4 Coats SinfulColors Anchors Away
1 Coat Seche Vite

In the bottle, I like it. In my photos, I like it. Staring down at my hands whilst typing... not so much. In my photos, Anchors Away is a glowing orangy-yellow marigold. In person, all I see is road paint yellow. Sorry not sorry, but I'm not sold...

Don't get me wrong! I love the brightness and boldness. I'm just not sure that Anchors Away was made for me, my skin tone, or my passive-aggressive distaste for the color orange. I mean, I tried, guys... really, I did! I wanted so badly to like this color... but it's uh, not me... It's Anchors Away... 

All that being said, application was great. The first two coats went on a little streaky, but the last two evened everything out quite nicely. I like the boldness and opacity of this shade, it's just not a color that works for me. Nothing wrong with that! I have seen colors similar to this in other collections, but SinfulColors is by far the most affordable at $2 a bottle. Especially if you're unsure how you'll like it! 

What do you think of Anchors Away?
